I'm surprised nobody's mentioned this yet (although I've only read the first responses to your posting; I didn't dig deeper into the thread).

Don't forget that nowadays, when Windows blue-screens, it automatically reboots without pausing at the BSOD itself (MS in its infinite wisdom has decided a while back that very few people can read or do anything about what's shown in the BSOD text, so why leave it on at all when it's shown)...

I find that to be a more likely explanation (bad driver?) than the update service deciding on its own to reboot immediately without giving you any warning whatsoever. And I'm saying this as someone who has no end of complaints about update prompt options.

For Win10 20H2: Start, Settings, System, About, Advanced System Settings (on the right side), then Settings (inside the Startup and Recovery groupbox), and see the state of the "Automatically restart" checkbox. If you uncheck it, and it happens again, you should be able to confirm this was indeed the reason. Hard to tell in hindsight however.
